Sneak Preview of Idris Elba in TAKERS

September 12, 2009

Resident FG2BH fave male actor* IDRIS ELBA has a new film out called TAKERS co-starring Zoe Saldana, Jay Hernandez, Matt Dillon, Chris Brown, Hayden Christensen, Michael Ealy and Paul Walker. (MY INITIAL THOUGHTS: I know all that male fineness in ONE film is LITERALLY impossible! What a lucky girl Zoe is, huh???)

Idris maintains his British accent in the film as well. (I safely say this because of the brief trailer I saw on YouTube.) This film sort of gets Idris back in the swing of his famous role as Stringer on The Wire.

‘Takers,’ directed by John Luessenhop, revolves around a notorious group of criminals (Idris Elba, Paul Walker, T.I., Chris Brown, Hayden Christensen and Michael Ealy) who continue to baffle police by pulling off perfectly executed bank robberies. They are in and out like clockwork, leaving no evidence behind and laying low in between heists. But when they attempt to pull off one last job with more money at stake than ever before, the crew may find their plans interrupted by a hardened detective (Matt Dillon) who is hell-bent on solving the case.

Imagine if ENTOURAGE & THE ITALIAN JOB were combined into a fast pace action film? Well from the looks of the trailer and all-star cast, my assumption may be right. This film already got my $12.50 when it hits theaters this upcoming February 2010.  However why is the official movie poster a major photoshop diaster????
